ACT offers between 8 and 10 different species of large shade and small understory trees. Trees can be planted on private property and not in a designated public right of way. This program seeks to encourage biodiversity through a varied tree palate, and stresses the importance of planting the right tree in the right place (i.e. small, understory trees are planted near utility lines). Program participants have included the following planning areas: Central East Austin, Crestview, East Cesar Chavez, Montopolis, North Austin Civic Association, Old West Austin, Rosewood, South Congress Combined, Southeast Combined, and Wooten.
ACT 2016 will be going to the North Loop Neighborhood
